Bodycam footage shows the moment two police officers in Dayton, Ohio drag a paraplegic man out of his car during a traffic stop.

Officials in Dayton, Ohio, say they are investigating the actions of officers who pulled a driver who said he was disabled from his car during a drug-related traffic stop last month.

Police bodycam footage shows Owensby repeatedly telling the officers that he was unable to get out of the car because he was a paraplegic, threatening to file a lawsuit and calling someone to "bring some people with cameras" to record the interaction.
